Epic gameeeeee ,


Good game. Make the next one I have been waiting for ages

Are there any names left like? ,


Yes I love these games. But when it comes to the AI knowing exactly where you are, to the AI coming out of no where to destroy any unit it attacks. There is a mission where you have to kill a spy... reached the spy in 14 turns and it said the sky escaped when it was just round the corner, surely something is wrong, it’s not possible to catch the spy when enemy’s just come out if no where to slow you down, kill all your units. Oh and the spy mission you don’t get a base and give you no units to reach it in time.. don’t want the game to be easier just want it to stop being to stupid at times. Oh and there is also a bug where it says your going to kill a unit but when you attack sometimes it keeps a tiny bit of health and stays alive.. what’s that crap about? If you don’t like stress don’t play this game.
